How It Works

Research shows that children with college savings are 3x more likely to attend and 4x more likely to graduate college.   Here is how we get families to save:

Step 2: Community saves together

B. C4C, local businesses, students, and families fundraise for C4C Scholarship Fund

Step 3: Watch your 529 and the Scholarship Fund grow
Money in your 529 and the Scholarship Fund is invested

Step 4: Pay for college
